In 1976 the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences and the Swedish council for building research formed a committee for vibration matters. The aim of this committee is to structure and inform about the present knowledge of vibrations and to initiate R&D activities. This report describes the subject of working group 4 "soil and rock dynamics". The report deals with definitions and basic concepts, dynamic properties of soils and rocks, practical fields of applications such as: earthquakes, dynamically loaded foundations, microseismics, compaction, pile driving and blasting.
